INSTEAD OF RELAXING IN A CHALET IN GSTAAD, POLANSKI DESERVES JUSTICE.FILM director Roman Polanski was released on bail into house arrest in his Swiss chalet in the up-market resort of Gstaad yesterday, following his arrest for fleeing sentencing in the United States for unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977."Roman Polanski was released from custody pending extradition and transferred to Gstaad, where he is under house arrest at his chalet," the Swiss government said in a statement. "Polanski has undertaken not to leave his house and property at any time."
Polanski was released from prison after posting $4.5million (£2.7m) bail, on condition he wore an electronic monitoring tag, surrendered his identity and travel documents, and did not leave his house.
House arrest means the Oscar-winning director could spend time with his family – he is married to French singer and actress Emmanuelle Seigner, with whom he has two children – while waiting for a decision on extradition.
"It must be special treatment – if he were a normal man, they would keep him in jail," said Anne-Marie Fankhauser, a local resident in Gstaad.
LET'S SEND HIM TO PRISON WHERE OTHER INMATES CAN DO TO HIM WHAT HE DID TO THAT 13 YEAR OLD GIRL.
